The highly popular Australian animated preschool series, Bluey, is getting its first video game adaptation. Developed by Outright Games in partnership with BBC Studios, Bluey: The Videogame will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC from November 17.

The game is an interactive sandbox adventure that allows players to explore Bluey's house and other iconic locations from the show. Players can take on the roles of Bluey, her sister Bingo, Dad Bandit, and Mum Chilli, with up to four players able to participate simultaneously.

Bluey, the TV show, has gained a dedicated following since its launch in Australia in 2018.

In addition to recreating fan-favorite moments, Bluey: The Videogame will also introduce a brand-new four-part storyline. Players can progress through the story at their own pace, earning in-game rewards such as costumes, stickers, playable episodes, and new locations.

The game aims to cater to both young children and adult fans of the series. It includes features like variable difficulty settings, on-screen instructions, and full voice-over to ensure accessibility for players of all ages.

Stephanie Malham, COO of Outright Games, expressed excitement about partnering with BBC Studios to bring Bluey into the world of video games. She described the game as an entry point to the world of gaming and a thrilling opportunity to bring Bluey's interactive world to fans worldwide.

Kevin Jorge, Head of Games at BBC Studios, emphasized the importance of capturing the essence of fun and games that is central to the Bluey series. He believes that fans will be thrilled to explore Bluey's world and engage in the Heeler family's antics through this video game adaptation.
